How much will an AFL team cost?

Shadow Minister for Sport and Recreation, Peter Gutwein, has called on the State Government to reveal just how much an AFL team will cost Tasmania.

“Why is this suddenly a state secret?  If Tasmanian taxpayers are expected to pay, surely they should be entitled to know how much.

“As the Tasmanian budget deteriorates, and the door opens for a Tasmanian AFL team, the State Government should for once just be honest and tell taxpayers how much a Tasmanian AFL team will cost.

“The Tasmanian Liberals are right behind a Tasmanian AFL team, we’re simply asking the reasonable and responsible question – how much will it cost?” Mr Gutwein said.

What The Hag thinks: Arrogant AFL pricks!
